I'm standing with women in nursing to #BreakTheBias
I often speak about diversity in nursing; I believe it is one of the most important matters that we must focus on as a profession. It is important on so many levels. I believe that the inside of a hospital, a surgery, a community team, a university or anywhere else where you might find nurses, should look exactly like the outside world. I believe that diversity can make our nursing world more relevant, powerful, and accessible. When I speak about diversity in nursing it is often geared towards my own journey and experience as a man in nursing. I use it as an opportunity to celebrate my career from my own unique perspective. I further use this platform to publicly say it's OK for a man to be a nurse and recognise the contribution men make to further diversifying nursing. Of course, I have my critics and of course I realise that gender is just one aspect of diversity.
